Global shipping is a vast industry: 50,000 merchant ships at sail at any given time, carrying with them 90% of world trade. At the equatorial heart of this crucial network is The Port of Singapore. Receiving close to 140,000 vessels annually, and connecting 600 ports worldwide, the Port of Singapore is a lynchpin in the system of commerce that maintains modern civilization—without which half the world would starve and the other half would freeze. With unrestricted access, this National Geographic Channel special goes behind the scene to reveal the unique and unseen human ecosystem of one of the busiest seaports in the world—the economic engine of the world’s leading maritime city-state.
